I just bought this today. I can't decide if it was an impulse buy or a genius buy. It's a full year of strength programing for $60CAD or $49USD, which breaks down to only $4-5/month. There are both gym and at-home workout plans available within the ebook. Every exercise in every workout has a link to a video clip. I think the biggest drawback might be that the workouts are 45-60min each, which to me is now a super long workout lol. But sometimes, I'm in the mood for that AND I'm much better about modifying things now than I used to be. I like Sohee and her approach to fitness/strength training so I'm hoping I'll get something out of this. If you are interested, today is the last day it's priced at $49 USD then she's going to raise the price to $69 I think?? I get nothing by linking you to it. I just thought I'd share in case anyone else wanted something like this. https://soheefit.com/collections/e-products/products/year-of-strength-with-sohee

Hey guys, I wanted to revisit System Six but the hard drive I had it stored on appears to have failed. (I am beside myself as in addition to all my files (ebooks, important teaching resources, etc) all my picture of my kids from 2014-2017 are on there. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone has pdf copies they could share? I can give you a screenshot of my original purchase in 2012 if you want to ensure that I'm not trying to pull a quick one or something. If you do have it, let me know and I can give you my email address in the members chat. I really appreciate this. And if anyone knows of a company that replaces drive heads on hard dives, I'd love some recommendations!

Do we have a thread like this already? I couldn't find one when I searched. Anywho, I found this beauty while perusing Instagram. Evelyn Tribole is on IG now and her posts are amazing! evelyntribole It’s so exciting to see research continue to emerge about the various benefits associated with Intuitive Eating! There are over 90 studies to date, and I’m excited to share the results of a new study (citation at end). New Zealand researchers Carraca, Leong, & Horwath compared Intuitive Eating assessment scores in 1,435 women who were extrinsically motivated to exercise for weight control purposes, compared to intrinsically motivated women who exercised for non-weight-related reasons (think enjoyment, strength, mood, stamina etc.) The weight-focused group had an eating style that was less intuitive, with a lower reliance on hunger and satiety & likely more dependent on diet rules. They were also more likely to engage in emotional rather than physically driven eating. Notably, the women who exercised for non-weight related reasons were more connected to their bodies and had higher Intuitive Eating assessment scores. This study is consistent with a body of research, which shows that extrinsic motivation (such as goals based on appearance) tend to be associated with worse outcomes. For example, studies have shown an increased association between disordered eating and a focus on weight loss. (I have seen this connection, over and over again with my patients). The results from this study underscore the benefits of Intuitive Eating, which is a process based on your body autonomy. One of the keys is to look at the motivation behind your behaviors. I want to hear from you! How might the results of this study relate to your own life? Think about your intrinsic motivations for exercise (consider reasons like functionality—such as improved energy, mood, strength, fun, and stamina). For those of you who have already mastered this—what helped you let go of focusing on exercise for weight control and body appearance? Your real life experiences are so powerful and inspiring to others, please do share in the comments. Citation: Eliana V Carraça et al. Weight-Focused Physical Activity Is Associated With Poorer Eating Motivation Quality and Lower Intuitive Eating in Women. J Acad Nutr Diet. 2018 DOI: https://doi.org/10.1016/

We have to bring this thread here too! It was one of my favourite places to get opinions on new shows to watch. Recently I finished watching quite a few shows. This is Us, Season 2. I hate to love that show. It's a little too much drama for me, but at the same time I'm sucked into the stories of the characters now. Girl Boss: Quirky. There were a couple episodes that almost caused me to abandon ship, but I kept watching. Glow: I finished both seasons. LOVE this show. Female wrestlers in the 80s. highly recommend. Good Girls: That was fun. Maniac: What a weird show! Anyone else watch this? It's about two people who end up in a psych experiment together. Heartland Season 11: Another Canadian show. This one is my guilty pleasure. It's just a feel good show. Atypical Season 2: Just as good as season 1. I hope they keep this show going. I started watching: Life in Pieces. I really like this one! Cute family humor. Season 3 of Schitt's Creek is on Netflix now. I love this show! Canadian and funny. Thumbs up. My husband and I recently tried out an episode of Quantico. I don't think he's sold. He doesn't like network TV shows. I didn't mind it though. Just enough action and "who done it?" for me. Bosch. Sometimes it's a bit long and a bit dry, but overall it's good. We are 3 or 4 episodes in. We seem to have completely abandoned Shameless, The Crown, Sneaky Pete, The Man in the High Castle, Riverdale, The Last Man on Earth, The 100, The Rain, and Money Heist. I also abandoned ship on Dynasty. It was awful. Anyone else watching Survivor? It's a great season called David vs Goliath. There are some really great personalities. I'm hoping Jane the Virgin comes back soon. I loved that show.
